Time Capsule


Object - Conceptual - Speculative

A speculative research project on how to pass on a message to the future. I got inspired by the endogenous and exogenous processes that influence how rocks and earth layers are formed. Therefore the shell is a dodecahedron-shaped rock; The capsule is durable enough to withstand high and low temperatures, but the shape is still specific enough to part it from natural rocks. The blood capsule came as an idea of a modern day abstract Ítzi. My speculation is that if it is found in the future, science is on a level where we can generate a complete portrait from a person only using his blood.
